Montana Mother Acknowledges Not Reading Medical Brochures
A Montana woman who is suing her medical providers for failing to diagnose her unborn daughter's cystic fibrosis testified that she did not read all the information a nurse gave her about the disease.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports defense attorneys cross examined Kerrie Evans of Gardiner on Thursday. She said if she had known her daughter had the disease she would have had an abortion.
Her lawsuit seeks $14.5 million in damages. Evans has testified that she was not given any information on cystic fibrosis carrier screening, but said she did indicate she wanted her unborn child tested for CF and Down syndrome.
